Traditionally, non-teaching periods are busy for the Technical Services Unit with installations and other activities requiring access to the Division's teaching spaces at times of less demand.

This semester break sees the installation of or upgrades to data and video projection in several of the Division's Category 'B' Teaching spaces..

Two student-accessible multifunction devices are also being installed.

Work on the NeViLLs (formerly known as the Microteaching rooms) goes on, with completion by 19 July promised by the contractors.

TSU is also working to replace AUVA computers on staff and postgraduate student desks, and hope to have most if not all of the desktop machines removed and replaced by the beginning of Semester 2.

There are still three labs with AUVA machines: current plans are to upgrade these labs before the commencement of teaching in 2005.
